Opening of "Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition 2023"

27 June 2023

For quite a few years, Crown Princess Mary has acted as patron of the Global Fashion Agenda. Among others, they work for a climate neutral fashion and textile industry in 2050.

With title as patron of the Global Fashion Agenda, she attended the grand opening of the "Global Fashion Summit: Copenhagen Edition 2023" (here).

The Crown Princess was accompanied by more than a thousand representatives from the global fashion industry, politicians, NGO's and experts at the summit. All gathered to discuss sustainable solutions and create alliances within the industry.

Crown Princess Mary gave the opening speech. She highlighted the importance of more sustainable solutions and how to reach the goal of a climate neutral fashion and textile industry in 2050.

The summit took place at DR Concert Hall in Copenhagen.

Seems like, Mary was not the only one who though a simple white blazer would be perfect for the grand opening. Photos shows that many of the attending women had chosen a similar outfit as Mary's. 

Mary matched a reused soft white vest and blazer from MaxMara. She first wore these two pieces with its matching trousers on an official visit in Sweden in 2017 (here). Since then, she has wore the suit on a number of different occasions, but also worn the blazer on its own. Like in 2019, when attending a celebration dinner related to Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2019 (here).

This year, Mary styled it with an old dotted Diane von Furstenberg skirt - first worn in 2019 at the presentation of the Carlsberg Foundations Research Awards (here).

Took me quite a few photos to realized that she was in fact wearing earrings. Fine floral-shaped earrings in brown enamel. She has worn them before (here). They have never been identified. Mary also dazzled wearing a few golden bracelets, but I need a close up to tell more.

As other accessories, Mary had chosen necklaces from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau. The matching MaxMara handbag and brown suede Gianvito Rossi pumps were a wonderful choice. Even her Gucci tortoise-like glasses were spot on with the rest of her outfit!

Day 2. Officiel visit from Norway

16 June 2023


Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary accompanied King Harald and Queen Sonja in Aarhus on Friday (here). The couple have traveled all the way from Oslo to attend an official visit in Denmark.

The Crown Prince Couple attended the opening of business conference and a dinner the previous day (here) and thereby accompanied Queen Margrethe, King Harald and Queen Sonja.

The royal couple arrived in Aarhus by Dannebrog - the royal yacht (here). In Aarhus, they joined the King and Queen of Norway for a business conference at DOKK1, a meeting with Norwegian students and Denmark and had official lunch at Aarhus City Hall.

Before leaving Aarhus, they attended "LiteratureXchange" - a literature festival.

What is not to like? Mary looked like the most incredible bouquet of flowers in that brand new Erdem dress. I am truly impressed. Her new dress is so beautiful. The details are exquisite. The pleatings, the neckline, the belt and soft sheer sleeves.

She embraced the style of her new dress with a reused Cara Couture hairband. Mary first wore this stunning hairpiece at the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the ordination of women to the priesthood in April 2023 (here). She matched it with smashing Gianvito Rossi pumps made of python. Even the clutch matched. This is still unidentified.

The fine diamond earrings and one of her rings are also still unidentified, which is quite impressive because both earrings and ring have been in her wardrobe for many years. Still no clue. The other diamond bands are from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

The previous day, Queen Margrethe hosted a dinner at Amalienborg. The following day, King Harald and Queen Sonja hosted a reception on board the royal ship Norway (here).

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the reception.

At the arrival, they were warmly welcomed by the Regal Couple. Wonderful to see the four of them together.

Mary was beautifully dressed in a reused floral dreamy blouse from Giambattista Valli matched with new white trousers. She first wore this blouse when celebrating Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday (here). I hope to identify her new trousers, because they are incredibly beautiful.

She styled the outfit with a lovely hairdo showing magnificent golden earrings from Rebekka Notkin. These earrings are also worn before. Like, when the couple presented "The Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2019" (here). Her golden bangle is also a reused creation from Rebekka Notkin.

We get a glimpse of a beloved 'F'-necklace as well. It is from Halberstadt.

The yellow Yves Saint Laurent clutch goes back to 2009 (here). It was truly love a first sight. I really adore this clutch. Mainly because of the color.

She had chosen reused golden Malone Souliers pumps. I was never really a huge fan of these pumps, but Mary wears them with such elegance.

Day 1. Official visit from Norway

15 June 2023


King Harald and wife Queen Sonja of Norway are on official visit in Denmark these days. They were warmly welcomed by Queen Margrethe earlier in the morning.

In the afternoon, the Crown Prince Couple accompanied the pair at a business conference at Dansk Industri in Copenhagen (here).

I'm always a big fan of her reused outfits! It's very inspirational to see how little has to change before it looks like a completely new outfit. That is what happened at the business conference at Dansk Industri. 

Mary embraced the style of an old outfit - a stunning blue Victoria Beckham blouse and a floral printed Paul & Joe skirt. She first wore this look at the inauguration of Herlev's new emergency room and women-child center in 2021 (here).

As jewellery, Mary had chosen magnificent aquamarine earrings purchased at Bruun Rasmussen Auction many years ago. Actually, she first wore them in 2004! The golden bangle is from Rebekka Notkin and her delicate diamond rings are from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

A closer look revealed that Mary was also wearing a brand new P. Hertz bracelet. Amazing piece of work. Hope we are going to see this bracelet many more times from now on.

The fine quilted handbag is a Chanel design and a wonderful match with the beige python pumps from Gianvito Rossi.

It had already been a wonderful day for the King and Queen of Norway since they arrived in Copenhagen. They were welcomed by Queen Margrethe, when they arrived by ship from Oslo. Around noon, the Crown Prince Couple accompanied the three of them for a business conference.

In the evening, King Harald and Queen Sonja were invited to dinner with Queen Margrethe as hostess. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also attended the dinner taking place at Chrisitan VII's Palace at Amalienborg (here).

The arrival and following dinner were broadcasted live on Danish tv (here).

Mary was dressed like a cotton candy dream wearing her reused MaxMara evening gown. She first wore the gown in 2017, when attending the 80th birthday celebration of King Harald and Queen Sonja (here). I love the idea of her wearing the exact same dress now in Denmark honoring their visit.

When did she wear it best? In 2017 or now in 2023.

At the dinner, Mary embraced the dreamy evening outfit with a reused tiara and matching earrings. She has worn this combo on a number of different occasion since 2015. The tiara was then purchased at Bruun Rasmussen.

Her fine 'F'-necklace is her beloved Halberstadt creation. A beautiful dedication to her husband. At the dinner, Mary matched it with a "new" necklace. Till now, she has worn the 'F'-necklace with a Julie Sandlau necklace. This second one is still unidentified. The same goes with her bracelets and huge ring.

The golden leather pumps are old ones from Manolo Blahnik. I always had the idea that these pumps are suuuuuuper comfortable to wear. I have heard that Blahnik's should be really good heels for all-day wear.

Mary also embraced the evening style with a SERPUI box clutch.

Official dinner for Denmark's honorary consuls

14 June 2023

The Crown Prince Couple arrived by boat to the Opera to attend an official dinner for Denmark's honorary consuls (here). They were accompanied by the Danish minister of Foreign Affairs Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

The honorary consuls assists the country's embassies around the world. For the last couple of days, the consuls have been gathered in Sønderborg to talk green transition with a focus on energy efficiency.

Crown Prince Frederik is patron for the meeting were 230 of the 341 honorary consuls were gathered in Denmark from June 12-14th.

I completely missed this event in her calendar. So I was very surprised to see photos of the couple on my social media, arriving to the Opera attended the official dinner. And wauw, Mary looked like a movie star at the dinner. That Moss & Spy dress is simply incredible. It is a reuse. Mary wore it first in 2019 (here) and then again in 2021 (here). The soft blue color is beautiful on her.

Love that she chose same-color earrings and a Christian Dior clutch. Dulong Fine Jewelry is the talented designer of her earrings. They come with a number of different pendants. Mary has worn these blue ones before (here, here, here). She also embraced the outfit with some bracelets and a couple of Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen diamond rings.

Seems like her grey Manolo Blahnik pumps are a favorite of hers at the moment because she also wore them in Jordan in beginning of June (here).

Reception for the Mary Elizabeths Hospital

07 June 2023

Did you know that Mary has a bridge named after her? Also a rose, a tulip, a geranium, a bench and now a hospital: The Mary Elizabeths Hospital (here).

On June 7th, she attended a reception to celebrate the new hospital. The Crown Princess was accompanied by architects, partners of the project and the craftsmen working on the new hospital.

After she had been given a guided tour around the construction site, she met with children from the SMIL Foundation's creative workshop at Rigshospitalet. 

The SMIL Foundation is a safehaven for children and young people up to 18 years of age associated with Rigshospitalet. The SMIL will also be part of the new Mary Elizabeths Hospital.

Honestly, I had my hopes high for her outfit at the reception and she was indeed good-looking, but I had hoped for something more. Maybe a dress, some colors, etc. Something a bit more glamorous. Instead, Mary had chosen a reused white Polo Ralph Lauren blouse/jacket and matching soft brown trousers from the same designer. Both pieces have been seen before.

She embraced the style with beautiful white south sea pearl earrings custom-made by Dulong Fine Jewelry. These earrings have to be her most beloved earrings. They go way back.

Her delicate necklaces are from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau. With these necklaces, she has her family nearby all the time with initials of her loved ones.

We also get a glimpse of her shoes. A pair of brown suede Gianvito Rossi pumps. Midi high heels.

The wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan & Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif

01 June 2023


Royals from all over the world were invited to Amman in Jordan to attend the glamorous wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif - now Princess Rajwa.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary represented Denmark at the wedding.

Beautiful as always! Mary indeed wore an award winning outfit at the wedding ceremony in Amman. It is the fourth time she is wearing that floral printed Erdem dress. 

First, she wore it in 2017 when celebrating King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway's 80th birthday (here). A couple of years later, Mary stunned again at the 20th anniversary of the American Chamber og Commerce (here). Last but not least, she wore the incredible Erdem dress at the wedding of Prince Gustav and Carina Axelsson in 2022 (here).

At the wedding in Jordan, she embraced the elegant style as wedding guest with a soft grey belt and a matching large hair bow. Never thought we would every see Mary wear a bow like this. Very chic. Clever of her to wear her old grey Manolo Blank pumps.

The delicate golden necklaces are from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau. All-time favorites at the moment. The custom-made diamond earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry have been in Mary's jewellery box for many years. They come with several different pendants - among others, these diamond drop-shaped ones.

In the evening, Crown Prince Hussein and his wife (now Crown Princess Rajwa) hosted an overwhelming wedding reception for their wedding guests. This gave royals from all over the world the opportunity to engage a little chat.

More than 1,700 people were invited to the evening reception and following dinner at the Palace Al Husseiniya.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also attended the reception.

I get it if Danish designer Jesper Høvring is proud to see her dress in Jordan at the prestigious wedding. It is indeed a big deal. 

Mary first wore the dress for the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling in 2010 (here). A year later, she showed up at a charity dinner in Australia wearing an altered version of the dress (here). She also stunned wearing the gown when celebrating Prince Joachim's 50th birthday in 2019 (here). Now, Jesper Høvring changed the dress once again. It is indeed beautiful and perfect for the occasion, but a small part of me still loves the first design most.

What design is your favorite? 2010, 2011 or 2023.

Better photos then revealed that Mary embraced her princess-like outfit with a rather new tiara purchased at Bruun Rasmussen Auction and earrings matching. She also wore a few bracelets and a fine ring. All of it looked perfect with both gown, clutch, shoes - and hairdo.

We also have a glimpse of her golden necklaces from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau.

Network meeting with SRSR

30 May 2023

In the afternoon, Crown Princess Mary arrived at Christiansborg to attended a network meeting with SRSR - Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.

The Crown Princess attended in her role at member of the High Level Commission. She gave a status on the commissions latest report. A report that shows both progress for girls and women across the globe, but unfortunately also setbacks due to interference from, among others, COVID-19.

One way, I adore Mary's outfit when meeting with SRSR and in another way something is troubling me. I can't really point out why. Still, I want only to speak good about her look.

Mary styled a reused white The Fold London blouse featuring the most incredible necklace and brand new Polo Ralph Lauren trousers. I am a huge fan of those trousers. Love the texture.

As accessories, she had chosen delicate golden necklaces from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau and a matching unidentified bangle. Look closer and you will see a very fine diamond ring as well. I have never identified it, but she wore it at "Day of Research" in 2022 (here). The style is familiar.

The same goes with her stunning clover/flower earrings. Never found, but she wore them in 2014 at the "Flag Day" ceremony (here).

Mary also embraced the look with a beloved brown leather handbag from MaxMara and midi suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Glasses are Gucci

Tell me: it is a winner outfit?

Royal Run 2023

29 May 2023

It was such wonderful news when Royal Run 2023 was announced. More than 93,500 people ended up joining this years run in Copenhagen/Frederiksberg, Nyborg, Aabenraa, Nykøbing Falster,  Herning.

Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and their twin siblings Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine ran in Copenhagen. Crown Prince Frederik joined the run in Aabenraa, Herning and Copenhagen/Frederiksberg.

Crown Princess Mary participated the One Mile run in Nyborg and later a 5 kilometer walk in Nykøbing Falster. The Crown Princess also made a quick stop on the way on the island Lolland. Here she paid a visit to Dodekalitten (here).

All participants get each their own Royal Run t-shirt. The entire royal family wore the exact same one. CRAFT has produced the "Royal Run wardrobe" for quite a few years now. CRAFT makes sportswear for running, skiing, cykling, etc. Mary also wore an old 2019 running jacket from CRAFT as well. She has also worn it in 2021 and 2022. Like that she wears the same old one and not just a new one every year.

For her pitstop on Lolland, Mary was also wearing a reused Moncler quilted vest. A great match with tops and navy running trousers.

Mary is known to love wearing a cap while running. It is unusual to see her without one. In Nyborg, she flashed a new Royal Run cap. Also from CRAFT. Another thing she is known for is chic sneakers. This pair is new and from Asics.

She accessorized her sporty look with a golden bangle and two bracelets from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau. If you have fallen in love with her sunglasses then you find them at Ray Ban - and Gucci if you can't live without the tortoise-like glasses.
